Developing NGSS Lessons for the Garden (Grades K-5) March 16, 2019
Let’s apply the guiding principles of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to make our students the lead scientists in our garden lessons! We will explore strategies and tools for supporting students in constructing explanations, making arguments from evidence, and communicating information. Then we will apply these strategies to favorite, tried-and-true garden activities to enrich students' opportunities to engage in the meaningful work of earth and life scientists. This workshop is ideal for participants who have already attended the Intro to NGSS in the Garden Workshop or are otherwise familiar with NGSS. Graduate education units available.
Anyone interested in teaching K-5 science in a garden.

"I am a scientist and have a Ph.D in molecular/microbiology, but I am a mom first. When I came to my son's 2nd grade class and found that the 'science' kids were doing consisted of making dinosaur dioramas, I knew the school needed to do more. I wanted elementary school students to be exposed to true, hands-on science. I chose Life Lab to fill the void because the science was sound. The Life Lab program provides true experiments for students and inspires in them a love of science."
